While Australia’s Olympic team underperformed at the Rio 2016 games, is the medal tally the best way to measure our team’s performance?
I’ve reluctantly come to accept that State of Origin will never be meaningfully resurrected in the AFL.
As far as the Australian Sports Commission is concerned, the measure of the success of Australian sporting high performance programs is how many Olympic gold medals and World Championships we win.
Both Dean Robinson and James Hird could well believe they are telling the truth because that’s how they remember things now.
There wouldn’t be an Australian over the age of 20 who doesn’t vividly remember Cathy Freeman’s run in the final of the women’s 400m final at the Sydney Olympics.
Is there a more demanding role in sport than than of the NFL starting quarterback? I think not.
